What is Precose?
Precose slows the digestion of carbohydrates in the body, which helps control blood sugar levels.
What is Precose used for?
Precose is used together with diet and exercise to treat type 2 diabetes. This medicine is sometimes used in combination with insulin or other diabetes medications you take by mouth.
How to consume Precose?
Take Precose with the first bite of a main meal, unless the doctor tells otherwise. The blood sugar will need to be checked often, and one might need other blood tests at doctor's office.
Will Precose treat the condition alone?
Precose is only part of a complete treatment program that may also include diet, exercise, weight control, regular blood sugar testing, and special medical care. Follow the doctor's instructions very closely.
What is to be avoided while consuming Precose?
Avoid taking a digestive enzyme such as pancreatin, amylase, or lipase at the same time you take Precose. These enzymes can make it harder for the body to absorb this medicine.
